The Queen smash hit musical ‘We Will Rock You’ is coming to the O2 in Dublin, in January 2010.
The O2 will host ‘We Will Rock You’ from 20th to 31st January. This will be after a UK tour of five cities; Birmingham, Manchester, Sunderland, Bristol and Edinburgh.
The tickets for Dublin’s ‘We Will Rock You’ tour are on sale now.
Queen’s Brian May announced the Dublin tour … “We are excited to be able, finally, to send a brand new top class We Will Rock You company to Ireland. We are completely hands on, and will be visiting! The Mother Ship, in the Dominion Theatre, London, will be rockin’ on all the while, keeping the home fires burning, until further notice!”
Personally I always wished I could audition for the Dublin band cast (maybe they use a CD now), being based in Ireland and also being able to play all of Queens songs … I might get along to some of these performances but good to see it coming to Ireland. Details are listed below.
